CAIRO: Egypt’s Ambassador to China Mohamed El-Badri discussed with Sinovac CEO and founder Weidong Yin accelerating the timetable for transferring COVID-19 vaccine-production technology.

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said they agreed to expedite the building of a central logistical warehouse with a capacity of 150 million vaccine doses, which will strengthen the country’s capabilities as a center for the production and export of vaccines to Africa. El-Badri said this reflects Cairo’s commitment to African countries.
